Back at home today! Here’s a shot of some bees after undergoing a sugar shake test!
Every so often, samples of bees must be scooped into a container containing pure icing sugar. The container is then sealed and rolled so the sugar costs the bees. After this, the container is gently shook to allow any bugs or notes that might be present on the bees, to fall out the top and into a bucket.
This sugar shake test is a harmless, easy way to tell if your have has any unwanted pests within it! After under going the test, the bees (while they might be a bit angry!) will resume their normal hive duties and other bees will simply clean them up and eat the sugar from their bodies.
In the image you can clearly see the tested bees by the white colour sugar coating, it sure makes for an interesting pic!
Hope everyone is well and I thank you for your support!! Follow me for more bee updates!
Evidence suggests that honey, in comparison with sugar-free sweeteners and table sugar (sucrose) may improve blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity. In another study, diabetic patients consuming honey had lower blood sugar than the diabetic patients consuming sucrose and dextrose.

Das passiert wenn sich Bienen frei entwickeln dürfen und nicht durch feste vorgestanzte Waben in Wachsplatten (genannt Mittelwände) eingeschränkt werden. Sie bauen die Waben so wie sie es benötigen.
Diese uneingeschränkte Möglichkeit der Entfaltung wäre auch für alle Menschen wünschenswert!
Everything is in perfect order here!
This happens when bees are allowed to develop freely and are not restricted by solid pre-cut honeycombs in wax plates (called center walls). They build the honeycomb as they need it.
This unrestricted opportunity for development would be desirable for all people!
